A Vision of Atlantis

The sky was shining blue above,
all the people one in love,
it was almost as if they never heard of

And with the night came moon and stars,
under whose direction people wandered far,
soon they forgot who they really are.

And without the sun to see,
they are trapped like you and me,
in the illusion of

Soon they'll be beyond all help,
then they start to scream and wail,
willingly abiding in their own jail,
Even to the detriment of their own

Why for all is it not plain to see,
what we were really meant to be?
So I'll follow you, and you'll follow me,
and as one happy we shall be,
because SELF destroys SELF.
